  • “The villa was very nicely furnished, spacious and had a beautiful view.”

    ...

    However, the images of some of the items inside the property were not very accurate, for example there was no Sonos speaker in the property, so we were disappointed as we purposely left our portable one at home thinking that there would be one provided. Some of the crockery were chipped which is not very hygenic. We had to wash the throws which had a musty smell on them, there were no bulbs in two of the bedroom lamps, we were unable to access Netflix or Sky movies in any of the rooms beside the one room that contained the double bed and the garden area outside of the master bedroom needed cleaning. I contacted Carbis Bay holidays regarding these matters on the first, second and third days (We only had a four-day holiday) but nothing was done about it apart from Luke coming out on the last day and logging us into the Netflix, which by that time was virtually no use as it was our last night there. Loved the villa but very disappointed with the lack of service from Carbis Bay and the owners.

About the location

CARBIS BAY

St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside village of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the delightful hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branch line. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country; St Ives additionally makes for a great day out, with plenty of galleries to explore. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property. There is a wooden open flight of stairs to the living areas. There are a number of internal steps leading down to the bedrooms and bathrooms. Bedroom Two is fitted with twin beds which can be made up as a superking on request.
